Three of the children of Samuel remained in Somerville: Sarah and Rebecca, who married successively Nathaniel Hawkins, and Lucy, who married Joseph Adams. Lucy's descendants are the only posterity of John Kent now in this city-five persons. John Fosket, 1677, married a daughter of Robert Leach, as already stated, and may have lived here, but none of hi eldest son, Philemon Robbins, married Martha, daughter of Isaac Tufts, a member of the ubiquitous Tufts family.

Old Cemetery Inscriptions. Bead March 3, 1908. By Charles D. Elliot. The land for the Old Milk Row Cemetery, which is now known as the Somerville Cemetery, was deeded May 17, 1804, by Samuel Tufts to the following persons, viz.: Timothy Tufts, Nathaniel Hawkins, Samuel Kent, Samuel Shed, John Stone, and their associates, on the express condition that the same be improved for no other purpose than for a burying place, etc. It was a part of the grantor's farm, and there is no reason to suppose that it had been used as a place of burial previous to 1804. The following inscriptions were copied from its tombs and headstones in 1857 by Miss Clariana Bailey. From a casual examination which I made in the yard in 1900, I should say that more than one-half of these grave stones are gone, and all traces of the resting-places of the persons whom they commemorated are now obliterated. I have reason for thinking that in many cases this removal of headstones was intentional and for the
